‘Dance involves the culturally mediated body, emotion, and mind. So do illness and pain’
"Dance is a song of the body. Either of joy or pain."
From ancient time dance has been an eternal part of our culture. dance is something which expresses the emotion of a person. There are people who dedicate their entire life for dance. But it is not necessary to be a trained dancer to enjoy dance. You and me can also enjoy dance, which I am sure that each one of us must have danced at least once in our life. Like said earlier dance is something which expresses all human emotion like love, hate, anger, jealousy, happiness and sorrow. it also expresses the inner desire of a person that what he actually feel at that particular moment.
Many youngsters are fairly careless with their own musculoskeletal and neuromuscular health. We watch movies and try to dance like the stars, we are fascinated by their JHATKAS and MATKAS, but what we forget is the number of rehearsals they go through for doing those perfect steps and the number of time they get injured. while dancing we may also sprain our ankle or suffer from backache which is neglected on our part and this negligence may lead to a serious health problem.
Even being so conscious about health trained dancers also suffer from minor or major injuries. but as they say dance is in my blood they still strive hard to be perfect.
Like most dancers, you undoubtedly want to lower your chances of incurring an injury while participating in your favorite dance. Injuries lowers your fitness, downgrade competitive performance, decrease your fine co-ordination and can lead to long term health problems such as arthritis. Dance injury is almost an inevitable part of dance at any level. It may take the form of an acute ligament tear or be as mild as post-exercise muscle soreness.
Different dances may lead to different injuries depending where their specific dance puts strain on their body.
Many injuries are caused by weak muscles, which simply are not ready to handle the specific demands of your Dance. This is why people who start a dancing programmed which includes the physical exertion, for the first time often do well for a few weeks but then, as they do more exertion, suddenly develop foot or ankle problems, hamstring soreness or perhaps lower back pain. Their bodies simply are not strong enough to cope with the demands of the increased training load.
Muscle stiffness is thought to be directly related to muscle injury risk and so it is important to reduce muscle stiffness as part of a warm up. Research has indicated that only dynamic stretches - slow controlled movements through the full range of motion - decrease muscle stiffness. Static exercises did not decrease muscle stiffness.
Training errors, inadequate preparation, worn shoes or equipment, poor biomechanics, muscle fatigue, poor flexibility, nutritional factors (vitamin deficiency), psychological factors (lack of sleep, stress) can cause the injuries during dance. This all factor can caused the trigger points, which are responsible for the recurrent injuries.
Role of Homoeopathy:
Dance is a high-risk business, and the physical demands on dancers are much greater now than ever before. When a dancer is injured performances are spoiled, audiences and companies disappointed and careers imperiled. Slow recovery from injury can lead to anxiety, stress and further damage to the dancer's health. A dancer's performance is not just physical. It is essentially expressive, artistic, interpretative and controlled. Dancers, therefore, are most likely to benefit from homeopathic treatment. This kind of medicine will not only be able to speed their recovery from injury, but can also help to improve the control of stress and pre performance 'nerves'.
They can be incredibly speedy and effective in their action, and can make the injured athlete begin to feel better almost immediately.
Body movement reflects the inner state of the human and, inner conflicts and issues from the Subconscious minds. Dancers are able to touch and express their sensation very well. This becomes easy for homoeopath to understand their deeper feelings and sensation easily. During dancing each dancer experience their deeper sensation, which if homoeopath understand then it becomes easy for him to find the perfect medicine for him.
Observing movement and body language is often a good indicator of someone's emotional state. People are encouraged to express themselves confidently in a non-verbal way, responding naturally and spontaneously to rhythm. This helps them connect with their subconscious to establish stronger personal identities in an atmosphere of mutual trust.
By understanding the movements and the speed, homoeopath tries to understand the energy pattern of the patients, which is according to homoeopath deepest. Along with homoeopath will explore all the Area of mind and body, including feelings, thoughts, fears, perceptions, sensations, reaction to thoughts, feelings, perceptions, sensations, fears etc and the way he/she cope-ups with all this. In Homoeopathy, each person is regarded as a sum of his innermost feeling, perceptions, thoughts, sensation plus the reactions to thoughts, feelings, perceptions, fears and sensations plus the way he cope-ups with all this and his diseases.
“Even in the most minor accident, if you feel a twinge of pain, no matter how momentary it is, you have done damage to your body! That’s why you have pain! It is your body's way of telling you to pay attention, something is wrong and "we are sending in an emergency team to try and fix the problem, please give us your co-operation!”
